Example of functional furniture being used to hold laptop

Remember those awkward and ugly pieces of furniture that were in your grandparent’s house? You know the ones — the small seat and attached mini-table, where the telephone was located. The hutch that was only able to hold a few tea cups and nothing else. The television stand that had no place to store the remote or the VHS tapes.

 

Those pieces of furniture didn’t match any of the other furniture pieces in the room, they were really uncomfortable, and they were totally out of style — but it was forgivable because they had a purpose. They had a job and were functional.

 

Today, furniture with function doesn’t have to be utilitarian and uninspired. Now, functional furniture is beautifully designed and offers incredible storage benefits.

 

Here are some of the Smitty’s team’s favourite pieces of functional furniture.

 

Ottomans with Secret Storage

Storage ottomans come in all shapes, sizes, and fabrics. They are extremely handy to store useful items in your living room that you may not want on display. Now, instead of trying to dig your remote out from between your sofa cushions, you can place it neatly inside your ottoman!

 

Depending on your lifestyle, ottomans can be a comfortable place to rest your feet while relaxing on the sofa, or they can act as a low table for a tray with decor items.

 

Available in a range of widths and heights, be sure to check your space before shopping. You want to be sure it will fit in your living room and won’t get in the way of your other furniture.

 

Lift-Top Coffee Tables

Lift-top coffee tables have changed everything. This innovative design allows you to have hidden storage, visible storage, and a functional surface area.  

 

This lift-top table looks exactly like a regular coffee table until you raise the easy-to-use surface. The table will then provide you with a great desk for working, a table for eating while watching your favourite show, or a surface to play a game. It’s an amazingly versatile piece of furniture for your living room!

 

Available in a variety of styles and finishes, these cleverly-designed coffee tables are terrific space savers.

 

Beverage Consoles

It’s great to have your glassware, beverage accessories, and bottles handy — and what better way than to store them in a beautifully crafted console.

 

Available in an array of styles with solid wood or glass doors, glassware shelving, and bottle shelving, these are not your parents’ hutches.

 

Stylish and functional, these consoles offer an easy way to stay engaged with your company, while preparing a beverage. No more leaving the room and missing out on the conversation, the movie, or the game.
